(PatrioticPost.com)- Governor Mike Parson of Missouri has publicly stated that he is ready to pardon the St. Louis homeowners who defend their property with guns when a gang of violent Antifa and Black Lives Matter protesters broke down their gate and appeared in front of their home. The footage of the homeowners became international news, with many claiming they were instigating violence by simply defending their home.
On Friday, the Republican governor told a local radio station that is Mark and Patricia McCloskey are charged over the incident by politically-motivated Democrat officials and prosecutors, then a pardon would be “exactly what would happen.”
“Right now, that’s what I feel,” the governor said. “You don’t know until you hear all the fact. But right now, if this is all about going after them for doing a lawful act, then yeah, if that scenario ever happened, I don’t think they’re going to spend any time in jail.”
He also said that believed the couple “did what they legally should do.”
The governor explained that mobs do not have the right to charge anyone else’s property and that the couple had “every right to protect themselves.”
Parson also made it clear on Twitter that he stands with the couple, posting the interview and saying that he will not allow law-abiding citizens to be “targeted for exercising their constitutional rights.”

Recently, the St. Louis police applied for warrants in the McCloskey case. Local reports say that the police applied for warrants but didn’t elaborate what they were for. The guns used in the incident to defend their mansion home were also handed over to the police as evidence. You can see where they’re taking this…

The way in which the McCloskeys have been treated so badly by the press and the Democrats was enough for them to get on board publicly with the re-election campaign of President Donald Trump. On July 18, the couple appeared alongside Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle as part of a discussion promoting the Trump 2020 campaign.
